New York City Employment Law Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Employees in New York

The employee/employer relationship is usually not one of equal power. Employees are in many ways dependent on their employers, whether for paychecks, promotions or job security in general. The dynamics of the relationship prevent many employees from speaking out and asserting their rights when they are treated unlawfully.

At Khan & Yau, P.C., our New York City employment lawyers represent workers who have suffered from the unfair and unlawful actions of their employers. With more than 20 combined years of legal experience, our attorneys understand how difficult it is for employees to stand up to their bosses. When you come to our firm, we will give you the respect and personal attention that you deserve, and your case will be treated with seriousness and attention to detail.
